About This Property

This extraordinary Avalon Fingers bayfront site is uniquely positioned at the base of Tarpon Lagoon and features both expansive southerly and easterly views and quick access to fast water. Tarpon Lagoon is so special in part because of how wide and long the water view is behind the home, particularly when compared to other Fingers locations that have a more marsh-centric view. Whether you are watching the sun rise over the calm water in the lagoon or enjoying the fireworks on a Friday night, this is truly an idyllic setting. Additionally, the Lagoon is largely shielded from bad currents, creating the perfect environment for children to safely swim. The home was constructed in 1973 and has been lovingly maintained and updated, including recent improvements to the appliances, air conditioning, a tankless hot water heater, and a vinyl bulkhead. The spacious home offers three first floor bedrooms and a family room, which walks out to the covered and screened in rear porch. The ramp and float, which is flanked by two boat slips, have been upgraded to maintenance free trex decking. Back inside, the second floor entertaining space is open and offers some of the best views in the house. Multiple slider offer access to the second floor deck, which is the perfect place to wind down after a day on the water or on the beach. The front part of the second floor (street side) of this quaint Avalon cottage is dedicated to the master suite, including an en-suite bath. The enormous site measures almost 11,000 square feet and could handle a home up to 7,500 square feet, leaving plenty of room for a pool (see next door for an excellent example of what could be constructed on this site). The location allows for easy access to fast water is less than 5 minutes, drastically different than some other Fingers locations. If you are in search of one the islands most prestigious streets and neighborhoods, and you prioritize views, this very special site is a must see – schedule your appointment today.
